Your favor of June 5. did not arrive before the Visitors who met in July had closed their Session & left the University. I may safely take on me however, to say that they will feel great obligation for your kind efforts to find a proper Professor for the vacant Chair. In the uncertainty of obtaining, without the University itself, a Successor to Mr Key, the Visitors thought it best to...

The question arising on Mr Simons’ letter of Jan. 10. is Whether sea-letters shall be given to the vessels of citizens neither born nor residing in the US? Sea-letters are the creatures of treaties. no act of the ordinary legislature requires them. the only treaties now existing with us, & calling for them are those with Holland, Spain, Prussia & France. in the two former we have stipulated...
The inclosed petition from Deville was handed me by Genl. Turreau. I told him at once it was inadmissible, that days had been long ago announced after which no vessels would be permitted to depart; that in favor of emigrants we had continued indulgences till very lately; but that as there must be an end to it, that time had come and we had determined to give no more permissions. they had had a...
Will you be so good as to propose any corrections to the within which you may think it needs? I think in your note of yesterday you must have meant Cahokia, which is nearly opposite St. Louis, instead of Kaskaskias. is the fact I state true, that the road proposed is conformable to the wishes and interests of the best settled parts of the state of Ohio?

I am just informed by a friend of Dr. Barraud of the Hospital at Norfolk that some arrangement communicated thro’ the Collector of that port, threatens him with the loss of his office; Having been very favorably impressed with the merits of this gentleman by strong representations from Bishop Madison & Judge Tucker, I hope to be excused for saying that I believe him to be a man of very...
We have recieved information that the emperor of Marocco having asked, & been refused, passports for two vessels loaded with wheat to go to Tripoli, while blockaded by us, has ordered away our Consul. this demand of his is so palpably against reason & the usage of nations, as to bespeak a settled design of war against us, or a general determination to make common cause with any of the Barbary...

A law of the last session provided for making a road from Nashville to Natchez, & another from Cincinnati, by Vincennes to St. Louis. not having a copy of the laws yet, I do not know whether it is necessary for me to take any steps on this subject at present, or what it waits for. can you inform me? The road from Cumberland to Ohio will be an important link in the line to St. Louis. there will...
The Attorney Genl. being absent, we must decide for ourselves the question raised by Colo. Newton’s letter Whether mr Cooper can own a registered vessel? or in other words whether he is a citizen of the US? I hold the right of expatriation to be inherent in every man by the laws of nature, & incapable of being rightfully taken from him even by the united will of every other person in the...
The sale of Dufour’s land appears to have been regular. the purchase too by mr Mansfield is valid in law, and in the Equity of the courts. it is true Mansfield was an officer of the US. but his office was no ways connected with the sale of the lands. had Finlay purchased, it would have been different, because he would have been both seller & buyer: but Mansfield was as much a private citizen...

You are to consider me in this letter as a witness & not a sollicitor. it is written at the request of a mr James Dinsmore who lived in my family 10. years as a housejoiner, did all the housejoinery of my house, being one of the ablest of his calling, and one of the best men I have ever known. while I lived in Washington he applied to me for a Surveyor’s place for his brother John Dinsmore in...
17 January 1803, Department of State.

In my letter of March 20. I stated the salary allowed to Professors in the University of Virginia to be fifteen hundred dollars per annum. I did not advert to the circumstance, that this amount was limited to those first engaged, and that their successors would be entitled to one thousand only instead of $1500. I hasten to correct the error, that it may lead to no embarrassment in the case...
I have recd. yours of the 24th. The conduct of the B. Govt. in protesting the arrangement of its Minister surprizes one in spite of all their examples of folly. If it be not their plan, now that they have filled their magazines with our supplies, and ascertained our want of firmness in witholding them, to adopt openly a system of monopoly & piracy, it may be hoped that they will not persist in...

For perusal & to be returned. Why not prohibit altogether fine Cottons & Woolens, which we do not want—& which in fact are not imported from any Country other than G.B. unless bought there from G.B. Such a total prohibition of these & some other Articles perhaps, wd. render a partial repeal of the Non Impn. Act, more operative, than the act at present is, or will be, under the new arts for...

I think the instructions are perfectly just which provide that if a purchase be made of the Indians adjacent to the Connecticut reserve by the US. the public should be at the expence of surveying all the lines circumscribing their purchase. but if they make no purchase, then those for whom the survey is should pay the expence. it has been sometimes made a question whether Seller or Buyer...
In the case of the rescue of the Felicity by Capt Newcome of the revenue cutter he certainly could not act as a revenue officer. but taking for granted the fact that the Felicity was taken within our jurisdiction, it was the duty of any citizen who had the means of vindicating our jurisdiction to do so. Capt Newcome, with the arms of the US. in his hands, for whatever other purpose they might...
